Analyzing Survey Results

The Results section of your survey will actively present responses as they’re collected. They will appear in the order you set them when building your project, and cannot be moved around. By default, your results will either be represented as a Data Table and Chart/ Graph or as Text Responses in your Quick Report.

See the below articles to learn how to analyze other project types:

Quick Report

This is the main section of your results, that contains all of your responses as charts, data tables, and text responses.

Tip: To change the title of this section, simply click ‘Quick Report’, edit the text in the pop-up box, then click ‘Save’.

Data Table

This feature will present you with the averaged results from all respondents for each question. You will also be provided with a possible three sets of statistics:

  • Standard Deviation
  • Responses
  • Weighted Average

Note: These statistics will not be provided for all question types, as some answers can’t be analyzed numerically.

For more information on any of the above, you can visit the Data Table article.

Charts

There is a selection of Chart/ Graph types that you can switch between, through the Question Quick Menu for each question report. The Y-axis (vertical line) depicts the number of responses, whilst the X-axis (horizontal line) corresponds with the number selected by respondents. The available chart types are:

  • Doughnut Chart
  • Line Graph
  • Column Graph
  • Radar Chart
  • Pie Chart
  • Star Rating
  • Rankings

Note: Not all graphs and charts are available to every question type, but you are able to switch between those that are available. Read more about charts and graphs here.

Text Responses

Some responses will be formatted as text, this will be true for any questions that required respondents to type out an answer. They will be listed inside a ‘Text Responses’ box, in the order that participants submitted them.

Individual Responses

You are also able to view results from individual respondents, following the below method:

  1. Enter a project that has collated responses
  2. Go to the Results section
  3. Click ‘Individual Responses in the top bar
  4. Cycle through individual results using the arrows or scroll bar

To exit the Individual Results section, click the ‘Back to Reports’ button.

Tracked Responses

This feature allows you to [view who has responded to your project] ({{< ref "help/results/analyzing-results/how-to-view-individual-and-tracked-responses.md" >}}), providing you launched via email invitations. I.e. If you did not use the email distribution method, then this feature will be unavailable to you in the results.

To view these, click ‘Tracked Responses’ in the top bar of your Results section. You can then use the slide bar or arrows to cycle through each individual tracked response. Note: Responses that are ‘tracked’ are not anonymous.

Filters and Comparisons

Separate your project results into smaller, more digestible, sets of information using a choice of six rules:

  • Question
  • Respondent
  • Domain
  • Date
  • Location
  • Completion

Filters

You can use filters to exclude responses that don't fit a specific rule you set for you report. You can find out more about applying filters here. You can also apply multiple filters to a report, allowing you to get very specific sets of data.

Comparisons

This feature can also be known as Cross Analysis or Segmenting, and allows you to compare two sets of data side-by-side. It is possible to mix Filters and Comparisons for full control of your results.

To learn more about filtering and comparing results, see our How to Filter and Compare Results article.
